And Lo, there was a Doctor Who series Three trailer. And lo, the fandom did squee. (You can't really come to many conclusions from just that trailer without reading far too much into things. Except that you can't not like a character who bitches about textbooks. But I am full of just general yayness)
And on a vaguely similar note, due to my LJ paid account renewing itself today, I have now gained five more icon spaces. So start making with the series three icons, plz.
Otherwise in fandomland, there's some great potential wankfodder when the protagonist of Cassie Clare's original novel is reported to canon_sues. Oh, and recently we had wedding photos and other lunacy from the HorseWife guy.
Out in that thing they call reality, a little birdy informed me Minotaur had the new Doctor Who Quick Reads book (the one with Ten'n'Martha), so I toddled down to have a read. Alas, they had sold all their copies. Or the little birdy lied.
In either case, I ended up buying Vicious Circle by Mike Carey to read, and getting the latest Triple J Hottest 100 album to listen to.
And just to be contrary, I wore absolutely nothing green today

It's just reality being a step behind what we were all thinkin'
The thing that amuses me most about it, though, is that because it's Cassie Clare, it's going to end up hugely wanky, whether she deserved it or not.
You have to admit that excerpt was pretty terrible though, especially since published work is meant to have some standards. (Although I've heard a lot about Eragon so maybe not)
The thing that boggled me most about it is that despite all the plagiarism shit, at times CCs fic could be half-decent. But this was just so... well, mediocre, even by fic standards.
It's like she isn't even trying.
RE: the Cassie Claire excerpt...
So. Much. Awesomer than I could have hoped.
